In five seasons with ULM, Viator posted an overall record of 19-39 and a conference mark of 15-24. The Warhawks reached six wins once during his tenure, but did not play in a bowl game.
Louisiana Monroe is 0-10 this season with one game still remaining on the schedule.
Viator, 57, was previously the head coach at McNeese State, where he was named Southland Coach of the Year three different times.
This continues a recent trend of coaching changes this weekend. On Sunday, South Alabama parted ways with coach Steve Campbell and Kentucky fired multiple offensive assistants.
With National Signing Day looming, more changes are expected in the coming days and weeks.
Elsewhere in the region, South Carolina and Southern Mississippi have filled their coaching vacancies with Shane Beamer and Will Hall, respectively.
Louisiana Monroe has yet to confirm this report.
